We're talking to you about his Winery
Saumur-Champigny. A well-known appellation, too well-known perhaps, and which does not always have an excellent reputation. Jean-Noël Millon is one of those Saumur winegrowers that you should know because his wines are of great quality!
Jean-Noël wanted to go back to the basics of the business of winemaker by taking over the family Winery in 2002. In red, his vintages are rich, deep, joyful and digestible due to impeccable work in the vines with scraping, grassing and respect for biodiversity, following the lunar calendar.
|Today Jean-Noël is at the head of La Source du Ruault, a 14 hectare Winery planted mainly with Cabernet Franc, the king of the Loire Grape variety . The Winery has been biodynamic since 2007 and Jean-Noël Millon has made a name for himself with the sincerity of his juices and the uprightness of his wines. Discreet but efficient, a winemaker saumurois for initiates. And we love his wines, by golly!|
